As the Lone Star cheer season is in full swing, the varsity team is embracing every moment, and preparing for an eventful few months ahead.

“This season has had a lot of ups and downs but I feel like we always find a way to get through it. It’s been fun, hard, and stressful at times but in the end it’s always worth it,”  cheerleader Cheyenne Carpenter, 2016, said.

Like any team, the cheerleaders have had their rough patches. However, there have been some very enjoyable moments.

“My most memorable moments so far were senior night and the homecoming game. They both were so special since it’s my last year and all the bonds I have with my teammates made them even better,” Carpenter said.

Varsity has worked hard to surpass last year’s season, both physically and emotionally.

“We have improved our skill level in stunts from just doing extensions, to liberties and heel stretches, and we have improved in growing closer as a team because of team dinners before games,” cheerleader Megan Martinez, 2016, said.

The cheerleaders know that cheerleading is all about teamwork, and that cooperating as a team is a key part of success.

“My favorite part about cheerleading is that it requires you to rely on and trust your teammates. I have grown to love the other cheerleaders and we’re basically like family,” cheerleader Michelle Tran, 2016, said.

The team’s hard work and success have been seen throughout pep rallies, where they have the opportunity to showcase their abilities in front of the entire school.

“The first pep rally was my favorite because it introduced the freshman class to our Lone Star traditions like shouting ‘star,’ and showed off the Rettes and cheer routines while getting our school pumped up with the band,” Tran said.

The team also enjoys cheering at football games, saying they will miss them when the football season is over.

“I’ll miss getting really excited with the student section, and seeing everyone be spirited and full of happiness altogether,” Carpenter said.

While they will be sad to see football season go, the cheerleaders are eager for the approaching basketball season.

“I am looking forward to basketball season because being close to the players on the court and cheering for the team is really exciting,” Martinez said.
